Home electricity customers will be charged about a half-percent more for service in 2012 as Appalachian Power Company makes up for investment in two out-of-state wind farms, the company said.
The increase is the result of the State Corporation Commission’s approval for Appalachian Power to recoup $6.3 million in renewable energy programs — in this case wind farms in West Virginia and Indiana. The SCC said on Thursday that it approved the raise.
While 4.2 million voter information cards generated by the Virginia State Board of Elections were given to the postal service on Oct. 22, there may be voters who do not have their new cards to take to the polls on Tuesday.
Eligible voters who do not have their new voter information card may still vote using alternate identification such as a valid Virginia driver’s license.
A few localities individually mailed their own voter cards.
